A yoga retreat is probably the most relaxing place you could ever be. Tropical location. Check! Healthy food. Check! Daily yoga and meditation. Check! With all that relaxing ahead of you, the last thing you need is to be stressed about what to pack. So don’t get stressed! We’ve put together the perfect packing list for your next yoga vacation or retreat.
Don’t ruin your yoga practice with a sunburn. Anytime you visit a tropical location with a high UV index, you’ll need to lather some on. Be environmentally conscious by choosing a sunscreen free of Oxybenzone and parabens.
With all that yoga and fun in the sun, you’ll need to stay hydrated! Pack your own bottle to make sure you’ve got H20 whenever you need it. Bonus points for an insulated bottle that’ll keep your water cool all day long.
An Amazing Yoga Outfit
No suitcase is complete without the perfect yoga outfit — think a cute tank, supportive sports bra and four-way stretch leggings. And the best thing about activewear is that it doubles as the perfect travel wear! With YogaClub on your side, you won’t even have to think about what to pack. Our stylists handpick activewear from the best brands, just for you! Oh, and you’ll pay half the price, too.
This one should be a given! A good mat can make a huge difference in your practice. But don’t worry, if you’re tight on packing space a lighter travel mat will do the trick!
For outdoor or heated practices a yoga towel is a must. From removing sweat from your brow to keeping your mat slip free, definitely pack that towel! We love a microfiber towel that dries fast and absorbs plenty of sweat.
Every yoga-centric vacation or retreat needs an excursion. Bring a comfortable pair of shoes for a hike up a mountain (you don’t want to miss those views!) or walk into town.
Pack a pair of shades for the beach or that beachside yoga sesh. There’s nothing worse than squinting in Savasana.
You’ll want to remember every moment of your retreat — especially if it's your first time taking time off to unplug and unwind. Use your journal to write down thoughts of gratitude after meditation or to reflect on your practice.
Now that you’re packed, it’s time to set sail! If you haven’t found that perfect yoga outfit yet, it’s not too late. Sign up for YogaClub today and pay half the price for designer activewear perfect for your next retreat or tropical vacation.
